Dear Dignity Friend,
Hope you are having a good week.
This Sunday is Brown Bag Sunday after Mass, bring your own dinner and join us. After dinner, Fr. Bob Walden will share, review and discuss the book Why Priests? by Gary Wills with us.
We hope and pray that this weekly message will nurture you spiritually and be especially helpful in the more difficult times of life.
We are in at the beginning of the Advent season…hopefully a time to slow down and prepare a place for Jesus to come into our hearts…
A Pilgrim’s Prayer to Live Life More Fully
I move so fast, God and sometimes I see so little in my daily travels.
Slow … me … down …
Create in me a desire to pause …
Help me to pursue moments of what speaks to me of beauty and truth.
My inner eye gets misty, clouded over, dulled. I need to see in a new way to dust off my heart, to perceive what is truly of value and to find the deeper meaning in my life.
Encourage me to enjoy BEING. Teach me to be present to the gifts that are mine. May I be more fully aware of what I see, taste, touch, hear and smell. Lead me to greater joy and gratitude. Grant me the courage to be my true self. May my inner freedom be strengthened, so I may delight in my everyday treasures.
